WA pronghorn survey next week
« on: January 18, 2017, 07:45:50 AM »
If you've seen any Pronghorn in the Yakima/Tri Cities/Goldendale area, post here or let WA.hunter know. SCI and WDFW will Be surveying the populations in those areas on the ground and in the air next week.
Thanks in advance

Edited "hairnet" to "air next", I think Siri got you.  :chuckle:

Should I add a poll to this?
It would be very simple.

Seeing any goats yes

:dunno: I think Siri and autocorrect just got you too.  I think "polar" and "threats" might get lumped in with "hairnets".

I seen a big group maybe 60-70 on 221 on horse heaven bout 4 weeks ago. Up by the huge dairy.  Also see them on the east side of 82 while crossing from Hermiston to Tri Cities.   
I kill elk and eat elk, when I'm not, I'm thinking about killing elk and eating elk.

Yes, agreed. My bad. Let's get this back on track. It's a good cause. Please report any pronghorn sightings in the areas noted above to assist the folks from SCI and WDFW.

Last survey was 147 animals back in 2015. The hope is to eclipse that number this year.

Was the original number of animals introduced 100? what year was the original planting done? I know there was at least one other thread on the subject but I can't seem to find it.

Thanks Josh for another tread.  We are always getting rumors that there are antelopes a lot of places. I have been told that there are a few up at Satus Pass, over in the Klickitat Wildlife area, also in YTC. I saw some pics of the ones up at Waterville and did not see collars on some of them..Raises the question as to why no collars, as all of the ones released by the Colville Tribe had collars. These transplants are occurring due to tribal efforts also. There are also some still on the Yakama Nation lands where the original transplant took place. This area will be surveyed by Tribal individuals and the plane on Thursday the 27th.
We would like to know about any you see. Next year we are hoping to be able to get collars on as many groups as we can find to better keep track of what is happening.

Have they been around long enough to reproduce?  :dunno:

They were first reintroduced in January 2011. Some of the does were pregnant then and had fawns. In 2015 there were 147 counted so the population increased by 48 from the initial run.

Josh, 

Being alot of this land is private how do they intend to count animals? Air? Driving?

I grew up with Many people who own tons of land out there, moons and bybee farms to be exact.  I will gladly go out and look for some goats. 

Gonna take my rifle in case some coyotes need thinned. 


Just to add I have seen many fawns so the population is doing well from what I have seen.   
I kill elk and eat elk, when I'm not, I'm thinking about killing elk and eating elk.

It doesn't matter what you think...

The Whiners suck!!
